coming up…

To quote my friend Bricco from the Blueheels, “Got a lot of donkeys on irons” right now. I think it means the same thing as “a lot of pans in the fire.” Show-wise right now : Sat. July 26th : Road America/Rolling Stone Stage in Elkhart Lake, WI; Fri. Aug 15th: Cactus Club in Milwaukee, WI (w/ Into Arcadia); Fri. Aug. 22nd: Empty Bottle in Chicago, IL (w/ Midstates). We are also working on some dates in the UK for September…We’ll be there for a little over a week, and be playing five or six shows, which i’ll post in another week or two…


Show this weekend/New album in the works

We are playing at Subterranean this Saturday *june 28th* in Chicago with Mr. Gnome and Blueblood. Both really good bands. Doors are at 9 and the show starts at 9:30. Rounding out the rhythm section this time around will be Isaac Pierce (from ten-speed) and Shawn Rios (of the late Cracklin’ Moth). As far as the new record goes, Henry and I are still working on it. Expect a release of some sort towards the end of summer…

Spring re-cap/Live tracks/etc…

Hey. Wrapped up the spring tour this weekend. I posted some live tracks from a couple of the shows. Thank You to all the bands we played with and to everyone who helped us out on this one. We’re setting up some summer shows now, and are planning on making it back east and down south in July. We are also working on a new album, which should be done soon.

take care,

road shows etc…

it looks like we’ll be playing a fair amount of shows out of town this spring/summer. hopefully hitting the coasts in june/july.
our myspace page will probably be the most up to date as far as that goes. right now we are working on filling in a couple more dates in april/may. we are scheduled to play kenosha, lake villa, madison, milwaukee, new york and chicago as of now. we’ll be playing these with a full band.

our next chicago show is on friday april 4th at double door. we are playing with ten-speed, our friends electric, and moxie motive. hammering away at the new songs still. expect to hear more each show. take care. see you soon.


Just wanted to say hello and let everyone know what’s happening these days. Henry and I have moved into a new work space. It’s a little more intimate, meaning: much smaller, than some of our previous digs, but right now it’s treating us really well. We have been and will continue to be demo-ing and fine tuning new songs for our next record. We are both really excited right now about the way things are sounding.

We have some shows coming up in the next few months also. The first one being in Chicago at Subterranean on Friday, February 29th with our friends the Championship and the Blueheels. Both really good bands that if you haven’t heard yet, you should check out. We’ll be playing around the midwest alot too in the early spring summer. I’ll post those dates soon…Hope everyone is doing well…we will see you soon.

Hi all.

Hi all. We are playing next Wednesday (the 26th) at Schubas. It’s the day after Christmas, and in keeping with the holiday spirit we’ll be giving away copies of a short live ep recorded last month in New York. There’ll be a limited run of 150 or so and we probably won’t print anymore after this. Our way of saying thank you to all of our friends.

Also playing Wednesday are Pistols at Dawn and Joe Pug. The show starts a bit earlier..(doors at 7, Pistols and Joe at 8 and 9, respectively, and the Record Low at 10). Hope you can make it. This will be the last show Hank and I play for while. After the New Year, we are going to disappear for a bit and start working on the new record, which should be done in the spring.

happy holidays

Game of pricks…

is a Guided by Voices song, and it’s awesome. the Record Low is playing this saturday at the Empty Bottle. We go on around 11:30. Come early to catch Bad Veins and the Swimmers (both good bands from Ohio and Pennsylvania, respectively). Hope everyone is staying warm in Chicago.

It’s freezing, literally, outside which means it’s time to start recording our next album which will be out early next year. In the mean-time (?) we’ll be releasing a live e.p., which should be out in some fashion in the next week or so….see you soon.
